Some ingenuity and a soldering iron...
« on: January 18, 2005, 10:17:47 AM »
Well, i was bored, and i have this old black target zone that was my first ever ball.  So since i can't sell it, i decided to have a little fun....

First

Second

I plan to do a little bit more, but what else you think i should do with it.  I can't drop it off a building since A) i don't have a builing to do that and B) i live in suburbia and would be arrested and C) would cause a big mess.

So what else?

EDIT:  There is an AWESOME update down below.

PS- i wonder how people would react if i put that on the rack after i finish writing stuff?

Btw, if anyone remembers what i did to my rhino pro x (the one i put in the oven at 450) I ended up dropping it off an abandoned 5 story building in downtown detroit, and amazingly, did not crack the core. I then attacked at the shell for a while, and now, all i have are a thumb slug and core left... its pretty sweet!

Fatboy, did you look at all 4 pics?

Right now i'm trying to etch a very deep groove in the ball with a flathead screwdriver, but it doesn't want to cooperate.  My goal is to get make a gouge deep enough to hit the core.

Here's some pride.  Not a funny one, but I like it.  I think it's art-ful.

Sunday sunday sunday!!

Whatcha think?  Is it alright for a soldering iron and a round bowling ball?

PS- anyone have any requests?  I'm running out of ideas of what to do.
